Once legendary golfer Tiger Woods was recently arrested for DUI in Florida. His toxicology report came back with five different drugs in his system, including THC, the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana.
Woods admitted at the time of his arrest that he was taking prescription medications, and that they were likely to blame for his intoxicated behavior, which was described by TMZ as “whacked out of his mind.” TMZ reported:
The Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office released the toxicology report from the May 29 arrest — in which Tiger was whacked out of his mind when officers found his car on the side of the road.
The report shows Tiger tested positive for Hydrocodone (painkiller, generic form of Vicodin), Hydromorphone (powerful painkiller known as Dilaudid), Alprazolam (aka Xanax), Zolpidem (sleeping pill also known as Ambien) and THC.
Woods had chalked up the arrest to an unexpected reaction to prescription medication — “I didn’t realize the mix of medications affected me so strongly.”
They did affect him strongly. According to Golfweek.com, Woods was disoriented and even struggled to even take a breathalyzer test which came back with a 0.00 blood alcohol level showing no alcohol was involved. The video from the jail and the breathalyzer is below:
Woods struck a plea bargain and will be getting inpatient treatment for his apparent abuse of pain prescriptions. No mention was made of the THC found in his system and they did not say the THC levels that were detected. Judging from the intoxicated state he is in, his problem is obviously not cannabis. You can also understand why they gave him a breathalyzer due to his seemingly drunken behavior.
His plea deal creates a 12 month probation period for Woods and he must also complete DUI education classes. You can watch the entire dashcam video of his arrest on May 29th in Jupiter, Florida below.
